Another late morning; I had trouble waking up. Eriko woke up too, but we didn’t have much time together. I was at work by 8. My calendar was quite full today, so I didn’t work on many issues. A meeting with my co-worker turned into an introduction to his wive’s new wine bar/art gallery, which was cool. They’re looking for investors and I see the potential; unfortunately I don’t have that kind of money. It takes money to make money, and I see why. I made it home for lunch with Eriko (although I was a little late). She was quiet and told me that talking hurt her stomach area a bit; it was nice being together. I left work a little early, arriving before 6. We had a nice meal, but Eriko was uncomfortable and silent most of the night. I sat with her on the couch and eventually watched a playoff game, but we never made any conversation. She went to bed about 9 and I stayed up for about an hour afterwards. Sometimes the reality of marriage is two warm bodies co-existing but not interacting. My expectations are changing, but I’m not disappointed.
